PeterH:I thinked about using a mercury tilt switch, but if i use such, i think i will be able to move the box very slowly, without activating the tilt switch??
Would it be possible to use the accelerometer to detect slight bumps and nudges? - i played with a vibration switch before (look at my referral for PeterH ^^) , and i was able to move my box slowly, without the vibration switch getting activated.
About the pressure sensor, i don't think that would be a good idea, because it will be a option to move the box without touching it (pulling the cables etc.)
